COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saisons are a Belgian farmhouse style that use a special yeast that produces wonderfully complex flavors of tropical fruit, spices and a musty earthiness. (The yeast probably originated in a winery many years ago.) This beer is a simple gold color, with a snappy hop bite and has a dry finish. The yeast character really shines though. Very drinkable.

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Appearance: Pours a hazed, shimmering gold body with a ˝-inch-high head formed of off-white froth. Smell: Ripened orchard fruits, a bowl of Golden Graham cereal, and a thin coating of ground spices leaning towards coriander in the fore. Jigger of liquor and some distant florals in the background. Taste: Light pale malts with slightly tangy portions of pils malt and perhaps some malted wheat. Honey alongside a hint of caramelized sugar though, don’t get me wrong, it’s not overtly sweet. Teaspoon of powdered coriander provides for an earthy spiciness throughout. Touch of florals. Fruity accents of ripe pears and Golden Delicious apples. Relatively light bitterness. Earthy finish with a bite of spice from the yeast and alcohol. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Overall: GB Saison has a nice body to it, without tipping past that line where the saison becomes heavy, flabby, and disappointingly cloying. So, how many saisons has Crawford pumped out at this point?

On tap, some weird sweetness to this one, not a ton of yeast character, weird for a saison.
